“The BMW 8 Series will take over as the new flagship model of the BMW line-up and, as such, combines unsurpassed sportiness and elegance,” said Adrian van Hooydonk, Senior Vice President BMW Group Design. “The BMW Concept M8 Gran Coupe offers a look ahead to the most exotic and alluring variant of the new BMW 8 Series.”
A long wheelbase, long hood, flowing roofline and short tail create a very sporty coupe silhouette. Being every inch the BMW M car, the BMW Concept M8 Gran Coupe has a roof made from CFRP which lowers the car’s centre of gravity both visually and physically, and aerodynamically optimised exterior mirrors.
“The BMW Concept M8 Gran Coupe is designed to stir things up, to polarise – it should move you emotionally,” explains Domagoj Dukec, Vice President Design BMW M and BMW i. “With this car we want to reach people who are looking for something special and who want to stand out from the crowd. Here, BMW M is unmistakably taking luxury out of its comfort zone.”
The new model sees the BMW Group looking ahead to the BMW 8 Series Gran Coupe and BMW M8 Gran Coupe, which will be presented in 2019 and will round off the BMW 8 Series family.
